  • About a month ago there was an issue with a Arduino GSM board referencing a tantalum cap. The blog entry was written by a guy working for Kemet and was an interesting read. http://www.baldengineer.com/blog/2013/09/13/ouch-the-arduino-gsm-shield-has-a-pretty-serious-design-flaw-with-its-capacitors/ http://hackaday.com/2013/09/24/safety-warning-arduino-gsm-shield-may-cause-fires/

No public wish lists :(
